"Full as a tick" nghĩa là gì?

Spencer Davis on Unsplash

"Full as a tick" -> nghĩa là ăn uống nhiều đến mức no căng bụng.

Ví dụ
Similes (ví von) and colorful archaic (cổ xưa) words don't get much play today. Southernisms sleep in the cemetery now, and young Southerners don't hear vintage talk like Granddad Poland's "eating a bait of barbecue." The meaning eludes me, but you know it's a heap. A mess of collards and bait of BBQ will make you full as a tick.

Everything is bigger in Texas, and that includes this grand barbecue buffet. Walk out as full as a tick after getting generous portions (phần ăn) of some of the best Southern comfort food. It’ll make you feel right at home.

It’s hard to appreciate (cảm kích) a good fight when everything else is crumbling around it. Last time we saw Covington in a title fight he was getting knocked out. The last time we saw Covington outside the cage, he was doing his usual full-as-a-tick routine.

She posted that she also loves to use “fixin’ to,” “over yonder,” “druthers,” “if the creek don’t rise,” “hold your horses,” “gumption” and her favorite, “full as a tick.” I’ve heard people say they’re full as a tick after a big meal, but they do realize ticks aren’t full of mashed potatoes and fried chicken, right?

"Talk like an apothecary" = nói như nhà bán thuốc -> nghĩa là nói nhảm một cách ngu xuẩn.

Ví dụ
And yes, believe it or not, I do talk like an apothecary and forget my temporal whereabouts (ở đâu) sometimes.

But still, I have to admit he has a point. Women just never stop talking, talk like an apothecary.

The Scuttlebutt taproom (tiệm rượu) stage had an intimate garage vibe but the sound bounced off outside noise and crowd talk like an apothecary.

Còn lưỡi là còn tiền

shared from fb đào trung thành,
Trương Nghi là người nước Ngụy, thuộc tầng lớp bình dân. Ông là bạn đồng môn với Tô Tần, theo học Quỷ Cốc Tử. Sau khi học xong du thuyết, Trương Nghi đi tìm công danh ở các nước chư hầu, làm môn khách cho quan Lệnh doãn Chiêu Dương nước Sở.

Chiêu Dương có chiến công lớn nên được Sở Uy Vương ban cho Ngọc bích họ Hòa là báu vật cửa Sở. Trong một dịp chiêu đãi môn khách, Chiêu Dương đem ngọc ra khoe. Môn khách chen lấn nhau xem, hỗn loạn không biết viên ngọc rơi vào tay ai. Thủ hạ của Chiêu Dương thấy Trương Nghi là người nghèo nhất trong số môn khách, nên nghi ngờ ông, đem ra treo trên xà ngang dùng roi đánh nhưng Trương Nghi quyết không nhận tội. Sau đó thấy Trương Nghi ngất xỉu nên tưởng là Trương nghi đã chết nên kêu người bỏ ở Vấn Mộng Trạch.

Mễ Nha Đầu trên đường đi dạo thì gặp Trương Nghi đang ngất xỉu bên hồ. Được giúp đỡ của Mễ Nha Đầu nên tỉnh lại, Trương Nghi hỏi:

- Nhìn xem lưỡi ta còn không?

Mễ Nha Đầu cười và nói lưỡi còn.

Sau này Trương Nghi sang nước Tần, được vua Tần Huệ Văn Quân tin dùng, phong làm Khách khanh, sau được phong làm Thừa tướng. Công trạng hiển hách.

"An artistic style" nghĩa là gì?

"An artistic style" = phong cách nghệ sĩ -> nghĩa là phẩm chất đặc biệt của người nghệ sĩ hoặc giới nghệ thuật.

Ví dụ
It's regretful that yesterday President Tsai Ing-wen adopted an artistic style to tell everyone not to doubt her determination to reform the TRA.

According to Griffin, it was his brother-in-law Long, who at an early age spurred his lifelong interest in art. During the years, Long would pull double-duty, as not only Griffin’s mentor, but friend. As a youth, Griffin would eventually accompany his sister and brother-in-law to Italy where he would attend high school while also honing his skills as an artist by studying Europe’s old masters.

“Its characteristics were similar to those of other bison found in at least 17 caves in different parts of the Iberian Peninsula and Central Europe.” Garate and his team’s research, which was published last week in the journal PLOS One, also includes studies of paintings found in three caves in the area of bison (bò rừng), horses and a bird in an artistic style previously unseen in the Iberian peninsula (bán đảo).

"Take an interest in" nghĩa là gì?

"Take an interest in" -> nghĩa là trở nên quan tâm, thích thú, tò mò.

Ví dụ
No, doubt, Arizona president Robert Robbins fashions himself an expert in intercollegiate (liên trường, giữa các trường đại học) athletics. It’s one thing for a president or chancellor (hiệu trưởng đại học) to take an interest in athletics, to support athletics, and to set goals for the department — Washington State’s Kirk Schulz is a good example.

“We should be empowering students who take an interest in learning about our political processes and are putting in the effort to make it better and more equitable for everyone,” the civic engagement organization Mississippi Votes said in a statement. “It does all Mississippians a disservice (chơi xỏ) to discount the intelligence of our young people.”

Dick's faith and love of God was at the center of who he was and influenced the kind of son, brother, husband, father and teacher he became. For over 40 years he was a faithful member of the Presbyterian Church of Traverse City. There he served as an elder, adult Sunday school teacher and for over 25 years as the communion coordinator. He was a fixture as the lead abbot at the annual Madrigal dinner and was dedicated to Bible study. His deep faith led him and Irma to assist in planting Northern Lakes Community Church on the west side of town and he continued to take an interest in their growth and ministry even into his last year with us.

"Somehow or an other" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Jac Alexandru

"Somehow or (an) other" = bằng cách này hoặc cách khác -> nghĩa là không biết làm sao, chưa xác định được cách.

Ví dụ
“The government has many, many different priorities, many, many different financial pressures, particularly in the wake of COVID,” he said. “(This) really allows us to move ahead, not being overly concerned that somehow or other our budget would be drastically reduced in the next three budgets after this one as a result.

"We had full houses at our liturgy (nghi thức tế lễ) services for Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Sunday. It was good to see the church full again," Miksch said. "People are always free to use good judgment. If you're living with an elderly person at home and you're afraid that they might somehow or other, get the disease, well then use good judgment."

He does not seem to have been any sort of theatre kid. He wasn’t hanging around the stage door of The Gate or memorising speeches from Henry V. “I was never an attention-seeker,” he once told an interviewer. But somehow or other he found himself at the Gaiety School of Acting. It is not too much of a stretch to fix Aidan within a golden generation for Irish actors — Irish movie stars in particular. Cillian Murphy, Michael Fassbender and Colin Farrell are at the older end of that cohort. Ruth Negga, Saoirse Ronan and Jessie Buckley also fit within the age bracket. That is a lot of talent to be born within a 20-year stretch.

"Sit for a portrait" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by sergio souza

"Sit for a/(one's) portrait" = ngồi (để) vẽ chân dung -> nghĩa là tạo dáng cho người ta vẽ chân dung hoặc chụp ảnh.

Ví dụ
He invited his colleagues to sit for a portrait during the pandemic, with the aim of honouring and thanking staff for their commitment as well as documenting greatest challenge the NHS has ever faced.

Sitting tells the story of three individuals who sit for a portrait by the same artist, with surprising connections emerging between the characters – including the unseen painter – over the course of three intercut monologues (độc bạch, kịch một vai). Where did the idea for the play, and particularly of exploring the relationship between the artist and the sitter, come from?

Griffey has observed that to follow the trajectory (đường cong) of Neel’s work is to witness a kind of visual history of the New York neighborhoods she lived in. However, after her 1962 move across town to the upper West side, neighborhood types appear less frequently in her work. She was also older by that time, and changing working habits may have affected her choice of subjects. Her process became more about calling on people from her network of friends, family members, colleagues and fellow artists to visit her in her home studio and perhaps sit for a portrait. This is how the double portrait of Hendricks and Buczak came to be; Hendricks remembered that they first visited her for a cup of coffee, and then, having clearly scoped them out as potential subjects, Neel invited them to return the next day for a sitting, wearing the same clothes. Color is like a third character in that dual portrait, just as it is in “Linda Nochlin and Daisy” of 1978; the sitters’ clothes, and how they cover and decorate their bodies, communicate much about them.

"Slippery as an eel" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Evie Messer

"Slippery as an eel" = trơn như lươn -> nghĩa là ranh ma, láu cá, đáng ngờ nhưng khó "bắt tận tay day tận trán".

Ví dụ
Since it has a glass back, it is slippery as an eel so for day-to-day use, it is best to slap on the nice matte texture case included in the box.

The rear back on the Night Black color review unit is a mirror polish (bóng, láng) glass so it is slippery as an eel and gets smudgy (dơ) fingerprints practically the moment you pick it up. Thankfully there is a case in the box to help alleviate this problem.

None of the tracks sound like they were made to meet the requirements of a particular audience, they feel like the artists want to go to places fast, even if some sonic elements fall by the wayside or get battered by the ride. Sometimes this all-or-nothing attitude gives the music on this compilation a raw, punkish feel, though they are primarily built to make people dance. The aforementioned ‘Iranm Iran’ is about as funky a funk track as you can wish for. Slippery as an eel, the track wriggles through its allotted 5 minutes with a distinct feeling of elan.

"Scratch an itch" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Toa Heftiba

"Scratch an itch" -> nghĩa là "gãi đúng chỗ ngứa", (bài báo) nói đúng ý, trúng ý.

Ví dụ
“…it was fun getting in on the conversation. And it gave me an opportunity to scratch an itch. Have you ever read one of Memorial University’s employment ads? There are probably similar ads elsewhere but Memorial’s always offends me because it’s a university. More like an institute of lower, not higher, learning to me.”

Outriders is definitely not everyone’s cup of tea but there is a type of player that it will scratch an itch for, and it’s on Xbox Game Pass to try as part of the sub if you’re tempted. Let me know what you think in the comments below. If you’re already playing and want advice, we’ve got plenty on offer in our Outriders guides.

By the time Jess re-entered the room my face was sufficiently numb and she began her work. All in all the treatment took about 45 minutes to an hour to perform, and while it is non-invasive, the woman is pointing a laser at your face so inevitably there is some slight discomfort. I’m the first to admit I have a high pain tolerance but I would put the pain level at a 3-4 at the very worst, and honestly, the only true moments of discomfort I experienced were on the outer areas of my face such as my hairline and jawline (đường viền của hàm dưới), where it felt like my skin was getting an electric shock. Funnily enough, I actually enjoyed it when Jess ran the laser over the central zones of my face. I would compare the sensation to the joy you feel after you get to scratch an itch – weirdly satisfying.

"The half is better than the whole" nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Nastya Kvokka

"The half is better than the whole" = một nửa tốt hơn toàn bộ -> nghĩa là phương án ôn hòa thường đạt được kết quả tốt nhất.

Ví dụ
“Sometimes half is better than the whole,” Schulz says. Given this refocus, a name like Semi-Autonomous Self-Propelled Implement Corp.

Rugged Ridge’s Half-door Proves that Sometimes One-Half is Better Than the Whole. When it comes to aftermarket doors for the Wrangler JK platform, the options are seemingly endless. Tube doors, soft doors, plastic, steel, aluminum—you name it, it’s available. Since the Wrangler is one of the only vehicles engineered to have easily removable doors, it stands to reason that there would be lots of aftermarket door options. While we love the freedom and visibility gains of simply going doorless, we often miss the comfort and security of the doors on longer adventures.

"Whole fam damily" = whole damn family -> nghĩa (chơi chữ) là cả gia đình.

Ví dụ
This easy-to-learn game is great for the whole fam damily over the age of seven (though fart jokes are funny for all ages, let's be real here).

You can’t beat a big platter of pasta when it comes to feeding the whole “fam damily” over the holidays. Amerigo is standing by to help out with their family meal packs for 4-6.

"An ant may well destroy a whole dam" = một con kiến có thể phá hoại cả con đê -> nghĩa là vấn đề, sai lầm nhỏ có thể gây thiệt hại lớn nếu không chú ý kiểm tra.

Ví dụ
She's very careful and patient to do things because she thinks an ant may well destroy a whole dam.

An ant may well destroy a whole dam. He didn't pay a good attention to every small stuff which results in a big damage.

They're no doubt with that little problem, so get very shocked when they failed. This teaches them a lesson that "An ant may well destroy a whole dam."

"One true pairing" nghĩa là gì?

"One true pairing" = cặp đôi đích thực -> nghĩa (lóng) là mối quan hệ hư cấu được người hâm mộ ủng hộ, hy vọng nhất trong chương trình truyền hình hay phim.

Ví dụ 
Jon and Ygritte will forever be my one true pairing on "Game of Thrones."

Everyone thinks that Meredith is meant for McDreamy, but she and Alex have always been my one true pairing, honestly.

"Fraught with worry" nghĩa là gì?

"Fraught with worry" có fraught là đầy, nhiều -> cụm từ này nghĩa là cảm giác đầy đau khổ, sợ hãi, khó chịu.

Ví dụ 
Both Blisters and Soil embodied this sense of grandeur, as well as Serpent’s affinity (thân thuộc) for classical music and opera. But the period during which he created those records was fraught with worry and creative anxiety. 

The mental abuse (sự lạm dụng tinh thần) had always been a part of their relationship, ever since they married in 2012, Carrie said. It stopped her from leaving the house and left her always second-guessing (đoán già đoán non) what he might say or do to her. Even a shopping trip left her fraught with worry.

The past year was fraught with worry about the contagious (truyền nhiễm) virus that prompted (nhanh chóng) some churches to suspend in-person services and the members of others to avoid crowding into the confined spaces of the sanctuaries. Yet, several local churches report membership remained constant, and in some cases even increased.

"Be worried sick" nghĩa là gì?

"Be worried sick" -> nghĩa là lo đến phát bệnh.

Ví dụ 
Celtic fans will be worried sick by what Bankier’s said now.

Many of us have felt what it’s like to be worried sick about your loved ones getting COVID, especially elderly family members and those who work on the front lines. 

As Chuckle hurried back to the house, he was fearful that Vincent had really missed him and would be worried sick. This thought made him hurry even more, stumbling (trượt chân) over his own feet and falling about like a clown in a circus (rạp xiếc). 

But how can the citizenry not be worried sick about catching the deadly virus when the claim of an excellent job by the national government in combating the pandemic flies in the face of facts, or the exponential (theo luật số mũ) rise in COVID cases in late March up to now?

“The whole shooting match” nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Kyle Johnson

“The whole shooting match” = toàn cảnh cuộc thi bắn -> nghĩa là toàn bộ sự việc bao gồm tất cả các yếu tố liên quan.

Ví dụ
The next thing you know, Murdoch will put Judith Regan or one of his old cronies (bạn chí thân, nối khố) in charge of the whole shooting match. It’s certainly a turn of events. Houghton Harcourt already owns Scholastic Press’s education and technology business, so now those go to Murdoch too!

After doing his maths, Burleigh came up with a price he would accept, but he remains tight-lipped about the figure. “We are looking for a seven-figure sum and not with a one in front of it. “We are talking the building as well, it’s the whole shooting match.” The bar has become famous for hosting streets parties, including during the 2005 British and Irish Lions tour and for All Black matches, live music and its St Patrick’s Day celebrations.

Having Wheeler in the middle of the press is the key to the whole shooting match. “Shannon Wheeler does a great job of reading that middle,” said Renaissance coach Shane Lawal. “That’s one of the biggest adjustments we made this year. Kailee (Davis) wasn’t getting to it how she got to it last year. So we put her up top to take the inbounder away and let Shannon kind of read the middle.”

"Work like a Trojan" nghĩa là gì?

"Work like a Trojan" = làm việc như một Trojan (là người yêu nước dũng cảm, cống hiến hết mình cho đất nước của họ, theo miêu tả trong các tác phẩm của Iliad của Homer và Aeneid của Virgil) -> cụm từ này nghĩa là làm việc cường độ rất cao trong khoảng thời gian dài, thường là những việc chân tay và không được vinh danh.

Ví dụ 
"I do have a beautiful garden, but I work like a Trojan in it. With everything in my life, I love creating beauty and I love flowers".

If you work like a Trojan and manage to advertise correctly and also start to show up in the search results within a few months, you could look forward to making a return about half a year after starting the business.

World Number one tennis player Rafael Nadal is successfully through to the third round of Australian Open 2020. However, on Thursday the Spaniard had to work like a Trojan in the second set against his lefty (thuận tay trái) opponent, Federico Delbonis.

Like Brumbalow, Higgins applauded (hoan nghênh) Horton’s work ethic (đạo đức nghê nghiệp). "He was a tremendous asset," Higgins said. "Dave Horton would work like a Trojan. He was absolutely one of the hardest workers I have ever been associated with. He was not afraid to take on anything".

“The whole picture” nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Mariana Kieffer

“The whole picture” = bức tranh tổng thể -> nghĩa là nhận thức/cách trình bày toàn diện về tình huống, khái niệm, chủ đề, v.v., bao gồm tất cả các yếu tố liên quan và hậu quả tiềm ẩn.

Ví dụ
“I believe that we are in a position that we can start reopening up more fully for our businesses and our residents,” Commissioner Longinos Gonzalez, Jr. said. As of now, the El Paso County is sitting under yellow on the state’s latest COVID-19 dial with a positivity rate at nearly 8%, nearby counties are also seeing similar trends. “Well positivity numbers are just one aspect of the whole picture on how the county is doing and we’re seeing continuing positive trends overall especially in the vaccination level,” Gonzalez added.

Health officials have said variants accounted for four of the more than 100 residents who tested positive for COVID-19 in the last two weeks after receiving their final vaccines. Turner said cases where people contract the virus after being fully vaccinated are rare, accounting for less than 0.03% of about 320,000 fully vaccinated residents. Data from the Idaho Department of Health and Welfare reveals 95 confirmed COVID-19 cases have been identified as caused by variants of concern. But Ball said official state variant counts don’t show the whole picture.

Around 1984, I hoped to write about career experience of Song Zhong, who was acting president of the China Table Tennis Association during the 1971 World Table Tennis Championships, and in "Ping-Pong Diplomacy." It was Song who sent the invitation to the US table tennis team to visit China in 1971. I was introduced to Song to record his historical dictation. After the in-depth interview with him, I made up my mind to carry out extensive interviews and researches of the "Ping-Pong Diplomacy," which would involve more important figures, so that I would present the whole picture of the event.

“The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth” nghĩa là gì?

Photo by Ibrahim Boran

“The truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth” = sự thật, toàn bộ đều là sự thật và không gì ngoài sự thật -> nghĩa là nhấn mạnh tính chắc chắn và rõ ràng của sự thật, lời tuyên thệ trước tòa cũng như dùng cho nhiều ngữ cảnh khác.

Ví dụ
Judge Peter Fraser, who managed the group litigation (kiện tụng, tranh chấp), said: “On the basis of information that has come to my attention as a result of the Post Office group litigation, I consider important evidence given both to the Crown Court and the High Court on previous occasions in other cases was not true, and was known not to be the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, at the time it was given.”

I also totally reject “wasting taxpayer’s money.” I love that God greatly blessed America and that we need to do “everything we can to protect it.” I too know we need “to spread the truth in whatever way I/we can” and yes some of “what is happening in our country is wrong” and finally I also want to “do my best to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth so help me God.”

“To think that we, as limited humans, have the omniscience (sự thông suốt mọi sự, toàn trí toàn thức, thượng đế) or objectivity to determine the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth is at best naïve (ngây thơ, chất phác) and at worst arrogant (kiêu ngạo). The best we can do is to hope that we all have some piece of the truth that we share with others in the public commons to hopefully knit together some semblance of the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.”

“A whole nother story” = một câu chuyện hoàn toàn khác -> nghĩa là nhấn mạnh sự khác nhau giữa hai vấn đề đang được bàn luận.

Ví dụ
“It was nothing to write home about as far as how it looks or how it looked, but it tasted delicious, and I was like, ‘Whoa. OK. Homemade cake is a whole ‘nother story here,'” she said.

The Finals matchup was a whole 'nother story. Someone lit a fire under Wiedemann's fanbase. With a vote total higher than any beer in any round this year, Bohemian Special Brew defeated No. 2 Gavel Banger from Taft's (the 2019 champ) with an astounding final score of 963 to 552. Absolutely impressive finish from the rookie beer.

"Last year we agreed as to what the investment of the city should be and I assume we stuck to that," Lazard said. "Here we are talking about not having any kind of scheduled or programmed summer recreation programs. "If we're talking about because of COVID, that's fully understandable. But if we're talking about not having any because of 'lack of funding,' that’s a whole 'nother story," he said.

“The whole wide world” -> nghĩa là toàn thế giới, ở khắp mọi nơi, mọi thứ.

Ví dụ
They were one of only six U.S. teams at the race and when it was over, Jeno remembers thinking, “This is the best sport in the whole wide world so we’ve got to bring this to the States.”

Despite all my troubles, I never stop caring about Pakistanis. As your favourite General in the whole wide world, it is my responsibility to protect you from all dangers. It is for this reason that I have decided to invite Indian and Chinese armies for terrorism training. Together, the three armies will do what Pakistan does best. No, I don’t mean training terrorists, you fools. What better place can there be to learn about terrorism and terrorists than our home called Pakistan.

Back in February, the 17-year-old artist made history as ‘F*ck Love (Savage)’ topped the ARIA Album Chart, making him the youngest Australian solo artist to do so.

“A wide boy” = nhóc xảo trá -> nghĩa là người kiếm tiền phi pháp, không chính đáng.

Wait a minute: Johnson’s press secretary says the PM “does believe in the wider principles of integrity and honesty”. Of course! Cockneys have a term for his sort: he’s a wide boy.

He has one friend, a wide-boy called Turner who teaches him that the way to survive is to keep your head down. But Elwood, still believing in virtue and the teaching of Dr King, keeps a record of the crimes committed, trusting that justice will eventually prevail.

Watto is a bit of a wide boy, and not above underhand tricks to get what he wants, but he clearly has a soft spot for both Anakin and Shmi. Your performance is littered with flinches of regret, shock and warmth which shine through the CGI. Were these discussed with Lucas, or were they translated directly from your on-set performances?

The condition, which researchers propose to call either 'bladder fermentation syndrome (hội chứng)' or 'urinary auto-brewery syndrome', is similar to another incredibly rare condition, auto-brewery syndrome, where simply ingesting (ăn vào bụng) carbohydrates can be enough to make you inebriated (say rượu, chuếnh choáng), even without consuming any alcohol via regular means (kể cả khi không uống một  giọt rượu/bia nào khi ăn).
